Ok so Ecclestone says that 20 races is the limit for F1, as next season we will have that unprecidented amount of races on the calendar. Ross Brawn also says its about the limit for a single engineer. Here is the 2011 calendar:
1. Bahrain GP – Bahrain International Circuit
2. Australian GP – Albert Park
3. Malaysian GP – Sepang
4. Chinese GP – Shanghai
5. Turkish GP – Istanbul Park
6. Spanish GP – Circuit de Catalunya
7. Monaco GP – Circuit de Monaco
8. Canadian GP – Circuit Gilles Villeneuve
9. European GP – Valencia Street Circuit
10.British GP – Silverstone
11.German GP – Nurburgring
12.Hungarian GP – Hungaroring
13.Belgian GP – Spa-Francochamps
14.Italian GP – Monza
15.Singapore GP – Marina Bay
16.Japanese GP – Suzuka
17.Korean GP – Korean International
18.Indian GP – Jaypee Group Circuit
19.Abu Dahbi – Yas Marina
20.Brazilian GP – Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace
However with the USA grand prix scheduled for 2012, a much talked about Rome grand prix and the possibility of Russia which 3 would you cut?
First off I think the “European GP” has very little going for it, there’s already a race in Spain and its a torrid circuit. I think the other personal favourites to face the chop are the chinese gp and the spanish gp. However spains a big market for racing so I reckon at least one spanish race is a safe bet.
Unfortunatly at this rate I see very little room for Spa on the calendar, the circuit lost a stupid amount of money hosting the latest race and I dont see the government stepping in.
